Run away to Hollywood this summer for classic postwar films

If you’re planning a trip to Los Angeles this summer, one of the best ways to experience the film capitol of the world might be attending a Hollywood film screening.

And if you’re in town at the right time, a good one to catch is “Runaway Hollywood: Global Production in the Postwar World,” a programmed series of films from the UCLA Film and Television Archive based on a book by UO assistant professor of cinema studies and film historian Daniel Steinhart. The films will be shown this summer at the Billy Wilder Theater in Los Angeles.

UO Today with Cinema Studies Assistant Professor Daniel Gómez Steinhart

Daniel Gomez Steinhart

Daniel Gómez Steinhart, assistant professor of Cinema Studies, discusses his book Runaway Hollywood: Internationalizing Postwar Production and Location Shooting, which focuses on Hollywood filmmaking in Europe after World War II. Steinhart also talks about "Hollywood Style," a class he developed and taught as a 2018-19 Oregon Humanities Center Teaching Fellow. The class examined the history and evolution of film technology and aesthetics.
